Why not use real transformer oil?

Shell Diala-AX is the real stuff and is cheaper than the other alternatives

My 2-cents worth...

Wow! One I can answer.  No, mineral oil is not motor oil.  Cheapest
place we found mineral oil  is in horse tack shops, sells by the
gallon....in our area about $8.00 per gal.  Can also purchase it in
pharmacies, but will pay lots more, $1.39 a pint.
Harold's big plate cap was submerged in 4 gallons of the stuff.  Worked

Incidentally coilers, little dummy here is going to try to construct her
own coil.
Presents a real challenge for me.
Happy coiling.
